Am in Rhodes, Greece...beautiful and laid back! Got a mani/pedi and now I'm getting a foot massage...so relaxing!

 

While I have free fast wifi I'll try to post some pics from Petra, Luxor and Israel.  Notice the Egyptian policeman sleeping in his car...great security! We got a chuckle about that. The mummy is some pharaoh.

I'm not Bob, but we had great air arrangements with O's air...no Claudia (we had Stephanie, now Amy, and Tricia)...I don't remember a Terry Burke but we started in LA so maybe he/she was on before that. The number of solos changes each segment...I think there are 52 on this segment.

I don't remember anymore but it was a ship tour.  It was really, really good!!  Totally up close with the elephants for quite awhile. I think it was the only one that included bathing the elephants...maybe that will help you find the same one.

Go Bucks---Hi Lisa, It's Kathy from the Vietnam tours.  I am curious about the picture you posted with the Israeli men with the black bans and what looks like head lamps.  What are they doing?  Tell Connie that I like her new hair color.

Not GoBucks but those “things” are called tefillins:

Yes....what he said!  (Thanks, Paulchili...😊).

 

I have to say that going up to the Western Wall was a very moving experience...tears flowed when I touched the wall and prayed. Seeing and being a part of all the Biblical sights were the highlight of this cruise and hiring our own private guide was a great decision. BTW, it was Guided Tours Israel and our guide was a local man named Ehud...the agency is rated #1 on TripAdvisor. 

 

Good to hear from you, Kathy!!  Stay in touch...I really enjoyed our time together.

It is always very busy there.Spoils it a bit. Those poor donkeys going up and down the hill. Have also seen lots of people slip going up and down as well

It was WAY too crowded, especially in Oia....although Santorini was pretty,  I much preferred Rhodes. Rhodes' prices were lower, it was more laid back, fewer people and so much easier to get from ship-to-shore-to-ship.

I agree, Lisa.   Rhodes was my favorite island port on our entire cruise (so far)...🙂

Thank you, Paulchili.  I appreciate the explanation.  Please note that I asked the question out of curiosity and did not refer to

Understood, no problem - it was my faux pas to put it that way 🙂

One of the nicest things we've done on Santorini is walk the Caldera from Fira to Oia.  You get all the views and none of the people :)
